Ma has four very different kids and choosingHick State County, in the USA's Deep South, is home to the infamous Big Mutha Truckers Haulage Company. That's about to change though, as proprietor Ma Jackson has announced she's planning on retiring. Her dilemma is who to leave the company to... Ma has four very different kids and choosing a successor should be done fair and square. The solution is simple: Ma's going to hold a "trial by trucking!" The one who can make the most money buying, selling and hauling cargo around the County in sixty days will inherit the company when Ma retires. Can you truck 'n' trade your way to the top? There may be some sibling rivalry along the way (not to mention obstacles of other types...), but as Ma always says, "When it comes to business, family don?t mean squat!" [Empire Interactive] Expand

  1. Sound fun? It is, though monotony may set in for some about halfway through. There just aren't enough roads or storylines to keep the journey captivating over the long haul. [Nov 2003, p.112]
  2. 65
    A mildly entertaining console port that's heavy on gameplay but short on substance.
  3. The game's arcade elements aren't done well enough to ever balance with the simulation elements, and the end result is a game that's too wacky to be a sim game, and too simulation-based to be an arcade game.
  4. It's never outright terrible. Which qualifies Big Mutha Truckers for some kind of best in breed award. [Sept 2003, p.99]
  5. 53
    Fun for a while, but the monotonous gameplay will soon catch up with you. There are only so many times you can bring yourself to traverse the highway from Capital City to Greenback.

    A few minutes of entertainment at best.
